Well I think its time to be heading back now
back into the black now
you can chalk it up to a false start
stepped on a roller coaster
lives gone loop the loop around my heart

I enjoyed my visit
don't think for one single minute
that I'll regret even the stuff I forget now
Its time to let it go
check my pulses your eyes roll
It may seem absurd
but it naturally occurs

I was just alert to the time under the dirt

(goodbye) Were not afraid to die
(goodbye) Were not afraid to die
Just the stuff between the start and the other side

(goodbye) Were not afraid to die
(goodbye) Were not afraid to die
Catch us in-between the stars and the sky

All the junk in space
old TV shows and Radio waves
they become your friends
beam you home
lost and alone

When you move away
some of you will stay
to drift round these hallways
waiting to return
the sun will burn
maybe life will find me

Star dust designed me

(goodbye) Were not afraid to die
(goodbye) Were not afraid to die
Just the stuff between the start and the other side

(goodbye) Were not afraid to die
(goodbye) Were not afraid to die
Catch us in-between the stars and the sky

What a great song, thank you
I like to think my test is beyond electronica, but I'm betrayed by my left foot, which insists on tapping along with the snappy beat.
I like it, but it also reminds me of that Jose Cuervo song. Could be a man singing, could be a woman. Not a bad thing.

Fortunately it isn't like the parody that Rod Stewart became when he ran out of ideas.

Nice! But does anyone hear Fergal Shirley?
 
Yes, if she's Feargal Sharkey's sister and has a good heart.
Fantastic. Flows amazingly from Great Lakes Swimmers. 

Thank you RP.
Nice! But does anyone hear Fergal Shirley?
Lovely! This song reminds me of Firefly. And that's a good thing!
This whole CD is quite nice.
shame that flac quality stream is not available anymore.For two weeks is not functioning properly
Nice!
Wow. I've heard this song before, but never 'heard' it. Today it hit me. Wow.
c.
I know this is a goodbye song, but sheesh, let's be upbeat for a change.
Bumping up to a 10 for me. Gets better with every play. 
This song has new meaning these days.
Reading Coronavirus news and listing to this song's lyrics.   Happy Thursday Morning!
Captures all the unspoken feelings beneath a simple good-bye.
so sad, so pretty, so good

I'm not sure why so many people here are looking to find some sort of plagiarism in songs.  There are only so many diatonic chord progressions, based upon the scales. Some composers work outside of those conventions, but not very often in popular music.  Ultimately, many songs will have parts that sound similar.
 

Very good point about the limits in the range of sounds in music. As one of my art teachers in college said, there is very little complete originality in the world, most of what is created is an imitation of some kind and that's not necessarily a bad thing, Imitating something with your own feeling and interpretation makes it original to varying degrees. And pretty much everyone who ever created anything in the world was influenced by someone. What comes to mind as far as influences in this artist is some older Chris DeBurgh or Rod Stewart, but it is nonetheless original music. An excellent original interpretation/creation based on what the band heard when they were growing up.

Thanks for stating that, Proc.....I agree with you so many times, esp. with your wealth of understanding music theory.  From a sociology standpoint, seems like folks are having a hard time enjoying the moment (not true for bluematrix who posted last...) and finding fault with what they can.  
This song (with or without any plagiarism) is a 9 of mine and Long Live RP!!
perfect song for this very moment. love it when that happens.

I keep thinking there has to be an old classic out there that this imitates.  But I draw a blank, myself.

I can imagine them running around asking their buddies which song it is they're ripping off - same as McCartney supposedly did when he came up with Yesterday.

Any takers?

Pretty much an exact copy of the song 'Future Boy', by the band...... errr..... by the band Turin Brakes.

Love this. Sad. Bought this record based on this tune only.

 Another great band Bill turned me on to, thanks!

 
know what you mean, there are 20 songs by Turin Brakes in the RP libary and I never heard of this band before
sounds very much like a Marty Balin song to me.

Is is just me, or does that intro with slide acoustic not conjure up some of the best Pink Floyd early records (viz, Fat Old Moon)?

 
To me, sounds like David Gray.
If you like this buy their new album Lost Property - album if the year so far

Just bought this album, and the long intro to "Blindsided Again" sounds like a Floyd tribute.
So pretty and sad. Another great band Bill turned me on to, thanks!

Agreed!

Just realized, with amazement, that I've heard this song three times on RP, but had yet to rate it. I'd even looked it up on Spotify and added it to a playlist there. This song deserves an 8 on first listen. It may move up. Soulful. Incredible.

Bumped this one up to an 8. Digging that slide sound. Haven't heard anything terrible from this band yet. Might have to visit iTunes store to pick me up some TB.

 
Interesting... I just bumped them to an 8 myself and then launched itunes to catch more of their stuff too.
  they make my day... simply like them {#Roflol}

I'll take anything by Mylon LeFevre and Alvin Lee. Bring IT! {#Notworthy}
Super enjoyable.
Bit of Larry Gown vocal stylings, I like it

Nice cover!

When they get it right, they do it very well.  An 8 to these ears.
KCAR = OLDFARTE
Not a bad set for a dark november morning in Germany! {#Chillpill}{#Music}
Subconscious Flow along the magic guitar sound
I like it... nice smooth bass groove.

What a great bass line...good song.


Their name makes me think of Italian cars.
The more I hear of this group, the bigger fan I become.
